The 13 year old Arciaga died last October 28th after suffering from severe dengue despite getting shots of the dengue vaccine.
“Not one but three doses of Dengvaxia ang (binigay sa) bata (The child got not just one but three doses of Dengvaxia),” Acosta said.
Acosta learned that Arciaga told her mother “Nanay bakit sabi nila hindi ako magkaka-dengue. Bakit nagka-dengue ako? (Mom, they told me I will not get dengue. But why did I get dengue?).”

Hesitancy in filing a suit

Atty. Acosta reveals that there are other victims who died but their respective families were either hesitant to file suits or have settled with the PHP50,000 given to them by the government as support.

55 complaints and countin…

PAO in behalf of the families of the victims, filed another six complaints before the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the deaths of six schoolchildren-- Renelyn Avellanosa, Psalm Dioquino, Lalaine Laylay, Levie Losanga, Theresa Romano, and Lennon Carl Ribo-- making a total of 55 complaints which have been filed by  PAO with respect to those deaths which have been connected with the dengue vaccine.
